Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Let your heart be light...

Your heart will be even lighter when Yuletide is accompanied by Mark's swingin' new version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", recorded with his old pal Jessica Martin: You'll get that and a lot more music in Steyn's seasonal singalong special.

The handsome hardback edition of Mark Steyn's American Songbook includes his tributes to Dorothy Fields, lyricist of "The Way You Look Tonight", "Sunny Side Of The Street" and "Hey, Big Spender!", and Jule Styne, composer of "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!", "Time After Time" and "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" - with a bonus finale on Cole Porter's great song and Frank Sinatra's classic recording, "I've Got You Under My Skin". In The Washington Literary Review, David Castleman called Mark Steyn's American Songbook "a wonderful romp through the careers of Dorothy Fields, Jule Styne, and Cole Porter." It's a terrific triple bill in one lavishly illustrated volume, and this holiday season you can make it even more fun with two great CDs full of memorable music.

When you order our American Songbook Holiday Singalong special, you'll get Mark's book plus Mark and Jessica's Christmas album Making Spirits Bright, and a double CD of Mark's centenary salute to one of America's greatest songwriters, Frank Loesser.

A Bushel And A Peck Of Heart And Soul features almost two hours of entertainment, as Mark and his guests celebrate the legendary composer of Guys And Dolls, Frank Loesser. From the Steyn archives, you'll hear rare interviews with Broadway figures such as Jule Styne himself and Burton Lane, composer of Finian's Rainbow. There's plenty of live music from Mark's special guests, including the West End's peerless leading lady Siân Phillips and the star of the Oscar-winning Barbarian Invasions Dorothée Berryman performing such Loesser standards as "Standing On The Corner", "Slow Boat To China" and many more. And Mark himself joins Cy Feuer, the producer of Guys & Dolls, and the 106-year old George Abbott, director of Pal Joey, On The Town and much more, for a warble through "Once In Love With Amy".

And just to round out the musical entertainment Mark and his favorite Sweet Gingerbread Girl Jessica Martin take a seasonal romp through "Sweet Gingerbread Man", "Jingle Bells", "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" and other holiday favorites - including Frank Loesser's "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?" - in their brand new CD Making Spirits Bright. One book, two albums, plus one of our exclusive SteynOnline greeting cards. And don't forget, the book and the card can be personally autographed to you or your loved one.
